My 2002 dodge intrepid shifts really hard, it seems like when I shift into reverse or drive then back into park it jerks and it pushing back.
If I turn on the cruise control then hit the break while driving to shut it off check engine light pops on then I have to pull over to turn off my car then when I turn It back on the engine light is off now while driving It is on and wont turn off. Just put oil in it and had a tune up. It runs fine just the check engine light wont shut off... sometimes the car wont start or turn over takes 2-3 times to start the car starter was just replaced.
